First Quarter Highlights

  • Net Income of $68.7 million, a decrease of 12.5% from prior year
  • Diluted EPS of $5.00, a decrease of 2.3% from prior year
  • Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin1 of $103.8 million and 6.9%, respectively
  • Returned $8.5 million to shareholders through dividends
  • Named a 2023 World's Most Admired Company by Fortune Magazine

ATLANTA, May 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Veritiv Corporation (NYSE: VRTV), a full-service provider of business-to-business products, services and solutions, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.

"The ongoing execution of our commercial strategy drove record first quarter Adjusted EBITDA margin, despite industry-wide destocking and softening demand," said Sal Abbate, Chief Executive Officer. "The combination of working capital management and the benefits of our recession-resistant business model also drove strong free cash flow for the quarter."

Abbate concluded, "We believe the benefits from our diversified and complementary portfolio of products, industry verticals and customers will continue to generate strong free cash flow and provide stability and investment optionality during this uncertain macroeconomic environment."

For the three months ended March 31, 2023, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2022:

  • Net sales were $1.5 billion, a decrease of 18.7% from the prior year; organic sales decreased 7.8%.
  • Net income was $68.7 million, compared to $78.5 million in the prior year. Net restructuring charges were none, compared to $2.7 million in the prior year.
  • Basic and diluted earnings per share were $5.08 and $5.00, respectively, compared to $5.31 and $5.12, respectively, in the prior year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $103.8 million, a decrease of 13.1% from the prior year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin was 6.9%, an increase of 50 basis points from the prior year.

For the three months ended March 31, 2023, net cash provided by operating activities was $70.9 million and free cash flow was $68.0 million .

"Disciplined management of our working capital and earnings stability resulted in strong free cash flow of $68 million for the first quarter," said Eric Guerin, Chief Financial Officer. "Our record low leverage ratio of 0.3x, along with an active pipeline of inorganic opportunities, provides strategic optionality for the Company to act on our capital allocation priorities. Based on our results and current market trends, we are reaffirming our guidance for 2023 as our strategic initiatives provide confidence in achieving our financial goals for the year."

2023 Guidance

The Company reaffirms its full year 2023 guidance. Net income is expected to be in the range of $265 to $305 million . Diluted earnings per share is estimated to be in the range of $19.00 to $22.00, based on approximately 13.9 million fully diluted shares outstanding. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $430 to $490 million . Net cash provided by operating activities and free cash flow are expected to be approximately $305 million and $275 million, respectively. Capital investments are estimated to be approximately $45 million, consisting of approximately $30 million of traditional capital expenditures and approximately $15 million of cloud computing arrangements2, consistent with our investments in technology.

Quarterly Dividend

Veritiv Corporation's Board of Directors approved a dividend of $0.63 per share payable on June 5, 2023 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on May 18, 2023 .

1Adjusted EBITDA margin, a non-GAAP metric, is defined as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales.
2Capital expenditures are reported in cash flow from investing activities and cloud computing arrangements are reported in cash flow from operating activities.

Non-GAAP Measures

We supplement our financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP with certain non-GAAP measures including organic sales (net sales on an average daily sales basis, excluding revenue from sold businesses and revenue from acquired businesses for a period of 12 months after we complete the acquisition), Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, restructuring charges, net, integration and acquisition expenses and other similar charges including any severance costs, costs associated with warehouse and office openings or closings, consolidation, and relocation and other business optimization expenses, stock-based compensation expense, changes in the LIFO reserve, non-restructuring asset impairment charges, non-restructuring severance charges, non-restructuring pension charges (benefits), fair value adjustments related to contingent liabilities assumed in mergers and acquisitions and certain other adjustments), free cash flow and other non-GAAP measures such as the Net Leverage Ratio (calculated as net debt divided by trailing twelve months of Adjusted EBITDA) and Return on Invested Capital "ROIC" (calculated as Net Operating Profit After Tax divided by the sum of net working capital and property and equipment. Net Operating Profit After Tax is defined as Adjusted EBITDA less depreciation and amortization times 1 minus the standard tax rate1). We believe investors commonly use Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and these other non-GAAP measures as key financial metrics for valuing companies; we also present organic sales to help investors better compare period-over-period results. In addition, the credit agreement governing our Asset-Based Lending Facility (the "ABL Facility") permits us to exclude the foregoing and other charges in calculating "Consolidated EBITDA", as defined in the ABL Facility. Consolidated EBITDA and ROIC are also used as a basis for certain compensation programs sponsored by the Company.

Organic sales, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and these other non-GAAP measures are not alternative measures of financial performance or liquidity under U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP measures do not have definitions under U.S. GAAP and may be defined differently by, and not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. As a result, we consider and evaluate non-GAAP measures in connection with a review of the most directly comparable measure calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We caution investors not to place undue reliance on such non-GAAP measures and to consider them with the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures. Organic sales, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and these other non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analyzing our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Please see the following tables for reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measures.

1 The Company uses a standard tax rate of 26%.
